Maharathis of Andhra (100 AD)

Maharathi was one of the titles that adorned the feudal rulers during the Satavahana pe-

riod. Other feudal titles used were Mahagramikas, Mahabhojas, Mahasenapathis, Maha-

talvaras etc.. The word Maharathi is perhaps derived from the word Rathikas who were a

specific geographic group of people in the present day Maharashtra. The Rathikas infact

find mention in Ashokan inscriptions along with another group of people called the Bho-

jakas. This suggests that the Maharathi title predates the Satavahana period. Satavahanas

as a major power in the Deccan is by now sufficiently clear from the fact that coins such

as those of the Kuras and coins with the appelation Maharathi both precede and overlap

with satavahana coins in stratigraphic contexts. This stratigraphic position is now further

confirmed by excavation at Veerapuram (Kurnool District, Andhra Pradesh) where coins of

local Maharathis first merge with uninscribed coins and then occur with few Satavahana

pieces. Dr Shailen Bhandare has published in his thesis a hitherto unknown Maharathi issue

bearing the legend ‘Maharathisa Chulavarunisa’.

XII-4-6), about extremely fine, Rare.

Coins with this form of circular tamgha in the Numismatic Circular (#173, 2013,

pp.177-8) and suggested that they may be issues of Chandragupta III. Their apparent gold

purity, heavier weight and the fact that only a few coins with this symbol are known from

the time of Kumaragupta, suggest that this might be a tamgha that was first used late in the

reign of Kumaragupta and continued into the time of Chandragupta III. He concluded that

it was too early to draw firm conclusions, and it may be the fact that this tamgha was used

sporadically in all three reigns.

This specimen is very alluring because of the goddess riding on a lion. The important noticeable point is the unusual pose of the goddess on the

Altekar in his Bayana hoard catalogue has described the object in Durga’s hand as a ‘Garland’ but when he produced his corpus a few years later

he offered the suggestion that the object was a Mundamala, popularly known as necklace of skulls worn by Shiva or Kali. So the goddess Durga

here could be an avatar of the goddess Kali and such depiction of Mundamala is the possible example of Shivaite depiction on the gupta coinage.

Coins Of Sultanates of India

Danujamardana Deva, the first hindu ruler also known as ‘Raja Ganesha’ sat on the

throne of Bengal Sultanate in the Saka era 1339 (AH819/1416 AD). He established Hindu

rule in Bengal and assumed the title as ‘Danujamardana Deva’. He was bold enough to

depose and stand in Bengal prominence.

Raja Ganesha was a Hindu landlord of Bhaturia in North Bengal. He came to serve in Ilyas’

court at the time of Ghiyas-ud-din Azam Shah. He continued to serve the succeeding Sul-

tans of Bengal and later seized control over Bengal soon after the death of Sultan Bayazid.

He took advantage of the weakness of the Ilyas Shahi dynasty, which ruled before him,

to come to the power. Some have argued against this identification of ‘Raja Ganesha’ as

‘Danujamardana Deva’.

But the fact remains that this ruler was able to strike coins in Pandua (Firuzabad), Sunarga-

on and Chatgaon during his reign and thus had control of a large area of Bengal. The only

person to be in that postion to our knowledge is Raja Ganesha, and the dates fit. He is the

first ruler who issued coins in Bengali script and language and they are dated in Saka era.

Mahendra Deva, the son of Raja Ganesha (Danujamardana Deva) revolted against the

usurper, converted to Islam under the adopted name Jalal-ud-din Muhammad, and then

himself mounted the throne as sultan of Bengal. It is said that jadu (the Hindu name of

Jalal-ud-din Muhammad Shah) had embraced Islam with such fervour that he did not wish

to regain a Hindu throne after the death of Danuja mardana Deva.

For Ganesh’s son Jadu did not reign as a Hindu raja; nor was he installed with any of the

appropriate symbols of Hindu kingship. Rather, in what appears to have been a compro-

mise formula worked out between political brokers for the Bengali and Turkish factions,

he converted to Islam, was renamed Sultan Jalal-ud-din Muhammad, and was then allowed

to reign as a Muslim king. Immediately upon his accession to power in 1415, the new

sultan minted coins in his Islamic name. That these coins were issued simultaneously from

Pandua and the provincial cities of Chittagong, Sonargaon, and Satgaon suggests a calcu-

lated attempt by Raja Ganesh to ensure the acceptance of his son’s accession to power as

legitimate over all of Bengal.

114

The two successive Hindu kings, Danujamardana Deva and his son Mahendra

Deva, minted coins during precisely that period from Chittagong, Sonargaon, and

“Pāndunagara,” an apparent reference to Chhota Pandua in south western Bengal.

Akbar started the Ilahi type of coinage in the 30th year of his reign. The above coin is the earliest variant of Ilahi type Gold Heavy Mohur in the

series, the countermarked year ‘30’ is the earliest reference to the Ilahi reckoning system which subsequently became a major feature of Akbar’s

coinage. Akbar promulgated the Ilahi Era in AH 992/1584 AD. It was reckoned from Akbar’s accession in AH 963/1556 AD, so ‘30’ would corre-

spond to the year in which the era was launched. An ‘Ilahi’ year began at the Vernal Equinox every year, with the celebration of the Iranian festival

of Nowruz. The calendar had twelve Persian months and was devised by Fathullah Shirazi, a Persian/Indian polymath. Soon after the coins were

minted, the mistake of not putting a date was noticed and the available mohurs were counter-struck with the Year 30 stamp.

Murad Bakhsh was the fourth and youngest son of Shah Jahan. He was born in 1624

A.D. and when Shah Jahan died, he was the governor of Gujarat. Being impetuous and

impatient, he wished to exclude his eldest brother Dara from the throne. On the death

of Shah Jahan, he plundered Surat and proclaimed himself emperor, striking coins in his

own name. He was persuaded by Aurangzeb to join forces and partition the empire, but

Aurangzeb eventually made him prisoner and he was beheaded in 1661 A.D.

The entire period from AH 1068 - AH 1070 where we find the coins of Shah Shuja, Murad Baksh, Aurangzeb of the same dates is very interesting.

Till date it is not confirmed that for how long the Shah Shuja has ruled as a Mughal Ruler because the coins have appeared with the single date.

On appointment Shah Shuja posted to Jahangirnagar (Dhaka), the capital of Bengal during his predecessors’s time and he transferred the capital to

Akbarnagar (Rajmahal) and might have issued these coins initially from the new mint where in old coins in the name of Shah Jahan

were minted for years together.

358. Hatakeshwara Sahi, Silver Kori, Obv:devanagari legend in three lines “Shri Hatakeshwaraya Namah”, Rev: devanagari legend in

three lines“Shri Raghunathaya Namah”, 4.22g, 15.19mm, choice very fine, Exceedingly Rare.

The obverse legend refers to “Hatakeshwara” (Golden Lord), a name of Shiva, and a form that is particularly revered by Nagar Brahmins of

Gujarat. In 1784, Raghunathji Amarji, belonging to that cast was appointed the Diwan of Junagarh State by Nawab Hamid Khan Babi after his

father the former Diwan was murdered. He was made a Diwan for life in 1811 by Nawab Bhadur Khan II and the office was offered to him in

hereditary capacity. He remained the Diwan for more than 40 years, retiring in 1816/17 after the Nawab lost faith him. He died soon after in

1819. Hatakeshwara was his “Ishta-Devata” (favoured deity), and the reference to “Raghunath” on reverse is no doubt to him, although in the

garb of a divine salutation.

This remarkable coin was first published by G P Taylor in Numismatic Supplement XX, 1912. After a mention by Codrington in 1895 of this

kind of Kori, Taylor was able to trace a solitary specimen in Junagarh Museum – which to him was the only known piece.

Taylor was hesitant to regard the piece he published as a ‘coin’, but a couple more pieces are now known and they all are struck to the weight of

a ‘Kori’. Perhaps they were a ceremonial issue but there appears to be no doubt to regard them as coins. Taylor himself thinks that they might

have been issued as ‘patterns’ by Ranchhodji, the younger brother of Raghunathji, before he issued the ‘Diwanshahi’ Koris of Junagarh, with the

word ‘Shri Diwan’ written on them.

The Patna assay master produced copper coins as a trial in 1794. He may have used exist-

ing rupee dies. In 1794 AD Mr. Blake the assay master at Patna wrote to the mint master

at Calcutta discussing the shortage of copper coins and informing him that he had conse-

quently struck some copper coins as a trial which was not accepted by the Calcutta mint

master and he replied instructing Blake not to strike copper coins and warning him that he

would get into trouble if he continued. In the June 1794 further correspondence was made

by Blake in the letter to the mint master at Calcutta givning explanations that it was just a

trial run. But as the mint master predicted the Calcutta council were not at all happy with

these copper coins struck by Blake without the authorization.

The Board entirely disapproved the conduct of Mr. Blake in coining this pice without pre-

vious application or authority and directed the Mint Master that “any pice should remain

unissued by the Assay Master at Patna, that they be witheld from circulation”.

412. Bombay Mint, Silver Rupee, In the name of King Charles II (1665 - 1685) and

on top on reverse, 11.21g, 22.89mm, (Ref # P. P. Kulkarni article in “A Journey from Bom-

baim to Mumbai” a Shukla Day Coin Fair Souvenir), about very fine, Extremely Rare.

This coin is widely believed to have been struck during Charles II’s reign at Mumbai in

1763. The Persian legends on both sides have not been read successfully though it has

great resemblance with that of the Rupees of James II and William and Queen Mary. The

earliest East India Company coinage bearing Persian inscriptions began to circulate during

the time of Charles II. In 1763, Martin Folkes reported that “the English Merchants trading

in the East Indies struck silver money in India for the use of their factory at Bombaim. Of

these he had seen the Anglina, Pax Deo and a third sort of rupee which had again only the

Company’s arms on the one side and Arabic or Indian characters on the other.” Pridmore

says that the Surat Council’s comment upon the inscription ‘Charles the second, King of

England’ perhaps indicates that while the obverse was the normal Anglina type, the reverse

was inscribed in Persian with that above inscription. The above coin has Persian inscrip-

tions on both sides. In 1681, a pirate named Henry Bridgeman (also known as Every) at-

tacked and captured a ship called the Ganj-e-Sawai carrying a cargo of 6 Lakhs of Rupees

and many people returning from the Haj. His capture of the ship and abuse of the people

aboard outraged the Indian Princes on the Western Coast. Mughal chronicler Khafi Khan

recorded: “This loss was reported to Aurangzeb, and the newswriters of the port of Surat

sent some rupees which the English had coined at Bombay, with a Superscription contain-

ing the name of their impure King. Aurangzeb then ordered that the English factors who

were residing at Surat for commerce should be seized. Orders were also given to Itimad

Khan, superintendent of the Port of Surat, and Sisi Yakut Khan, to make preparations for

besieging the fort of Bombay.

julus, zarb kankurti at bottom and al manus, 11.6g, 20.57mm, Unlisted and unpublished, about very fine with some file and finishing marks at persian

‘seen’ of julus, nevertheless Exceedingly Rare.

A new discovery and first piece known so far, the highest rarity and important coin of Mints in Deccan (South India) of Mughal Empire. Unique

Specimen.

Farrukhsiyar was born to Azeem-us-Shan in Aurangabad in the Deccan and accompanied his father during the year 1696 AD to Bengal. His earlier

days were spent in Dhaka and Murshidabad. After defeating Jahandar Shah he took the throne of Mughal Empire.

This specimen reads the mint Kankurti which as per the “Report of the Nizam’s Archaeological Department” for the years 1920-24 was located in

Malkhed in the district of Muzaffarnagar in the Andhra Pradesh. Malkhed (Manyakheta) in Sedam taluk of Gulbarga district was the capital of the

Rashtrakutas. During the medieval period, it came under the muslims and a strong fort by name Muzaffarqila was built here. It was also referred to

as Muzaffarnagar in the Mahboobnagar district which is approximately 85 kms from Hyderabad.

Hyderabad became independent of Mughal rule under Chin Qilich Khan, better known in history as Nizam-ul-Mulk. Chin Qilich Khan( was the

Governor of Bijapur at the time of Aurangzeb’s death. But Bahadur Shah removed him from the Deccan and made him Governor of Oudh (Awadh)

in December 1707 AD. In the year 1713 AD Farrukhsiyar appointed him as the Governor of Six Subahs of the Deccan with the title of Nizam-ul-

Mulk and it could be a possible reign when the coins from the Kankurti mint name with the name of Farruksiyar were struck under the authorization

of the Governor at Deccan

Only silver rupees of Kankurti mint are known and reported, this gold mohur is the new discovery in the Farrukhsiyar gold mohurs and a very im-

portant piece.

Between 1872 and 1876, India’s Viceroy was Lord Northbrook. The important events during his reign were deposition of Gaikwad of Baroda in

1875, visit of Prince of Wales, Famine in Bihar and Kuka Movement in Punjab.

The Prince of Wales, eldest son of Queen Victoria visited India in 1876 with a large suite. He arrived in Bombay and then travelled to Madras, Ceylon

and finally Calcutta. The intent of this visit was to inspire the local princes’ loyalty to the British Empress and affirm their central role in the main-

tenance of the empire. Wherever he went, he was showered with valuable gifts by the “loyal” Indian feudatories. He collected so much in 6 months

that one of the ships was filled with the jewels, paintings, antique weapons, live animals, embroideries brocades and all kinds of contemporary art

works. He returned and the gifts went on an exhibition in England for 6 months. In return the Prince of Wales gave Indian Princes a copy of Rig-veda

translated by Max Muller. Probably offered for the first time in any auction, no previous records are traceable.
